I have two ASX listed shares which are having corporate actions. One is a vote on a takeover and the other is a rights issue.

I can see that IG require you to physically print out the voter form and send it in, reaching them seven days prior to the meeting date. In this day and age surely scanning a completed form and emailing it back is easier. IG do not want to make it easy for you.

The more important question is regarding the rights issue. I have contacted the company directly about how to take up the rights issue without an Australian bank account (there requirements seem to be that it has to go via an Australian account).

They tried to be helpful but advised that they could not see my name on the register. How do IG hold the shares - is it through a custodian and if so who is it? how can the company see the individuals owning its shares?

Hi @Fungus,

Under Share Trading with IG, shares purchased are held by Citi in a direct custody capacity.  Australian shares purchased through IG are registered in CHESS under Citicorp Nominees Pty Limited, with a CHESS Participant Identification Number (PID) 20018. More information here.

Once our Corporate Action team will have all the details of the right issue from the custodian, they will send you an email will all the details of the corporate action as well as the deadlines. All you will have to do is to reply to that email with your instructions.

I hope that it helps !

All the best - Arvin

    • What really caught my eye about ChatAI is the way it aims to go beyond the limitations of traditional social media platforms. Instead of relying on text-based or voice-based interactions alone, this project is designed to support multimodal communication, allowing users to engage through a variety of formats like text, voice, and images. ChatAI is positioning itself as a revolutionary social application that combines advanced AI capabilities with the power of decentralized technology. The core idea is to open up a new era of social interaction by leveraging cutting-edge natural language processing (NLP) to enable smooth and efficient communication. But it's not just about the technical capabilities - ChatAI also seems to have a strong focus on personalization and continuous learning. The platform is built to continuously optimize its performance based on user data, adapting to individual preferences and enhancing the overall user experience over time. I was really excited to hear the news that the ChatAI (CHATAI) token is now listed on the Bitget cryptocurrency exchange. As someone who is deeply interested in the intersection of artificial intelligence, web3 technology, and social media, this listing feels like a significant milestone for the project.
    • I could remember what happened to Binance & kucoin. This might be another slap in the face of SEC but who knows, let's see how this unfolds. 
    • The consequences would obviously be the risk of users assets. While I feel the move is wrong, the timing of this decision raises serious concern that may have a serious consequences on the exchange.
